    Woah ! :cool:

    You "saw it", but did you acquire it ?

    Welcome aboard, swinz :waving:

    Can we assume you saw it at a place of work you visited? I'd like to see the machine which could accommodate that. :o ;) Given that it's on castors, surely a workshop job?

    That Woden 100/2 is awesome. I think having one of those would be the most fun you could have without taking your clothes off.

    Anyway, the moment didn't last too long, and I just couldn't resist stripping it down, tuning it up, and giving it a new green suit. :D PICT0028 (Medium).JPG

    It was seen at a place of work and one where taking photos is not permitted (large U.K. Based Aero engine manufacturer) but it was too good a vice to miss the opportunity to take a snap.
    It looked like it was still used occasionally so I couldn't acquire it and it was way too big to just slip it in my bag when no one was looking.

    i need a bit of help with this one. i bought two of these from a carboot recently i intend using them on the mill or clamping awkward shaped things. can anyone identify who makes them and what they were made for. i know they're not a bench vice but i thought i could tap into the wealth of experts on here. They are made to fix to some machine as they have T slot grooves underneath they are really well made the head floats and the two jaws float on the top it says mc1630 and patt w&w i can put more pics if needed cheers guys 20161205_155914.jpg 20161205_155904.jpg

    Was gifted this today, I will get when owner retires at the end of this year.

    A little workshop what would make anything. Plus he has a decent coffee.

    Sorry about the poor photo, camera phone. I think has he was gifting me, taking pictures was in bad taste.

    Yes.
    Looks dirty and abused, but is in good working order.
    I understand it was once in a JCB workshop, hence why there is yellow paint showing.

    I know it's not a bench vice, but I've just bought a Record 53A wood vice. Been looking for a 1950s handle one for ages to match my 34P (I'm pedantic like that). My Woden one is a pain to use and to be honest 7 inches will never win against 10 1/2!

    A few rotating bench vices to jolly the thread along. All need various bits of work when I find the time.
